A Tennessee woman named Karen Swift has vanished after a Halloween party less than 80 miles from the location where Holly Bobo was last seen in April, raising concerns that the two cases might be linked.
Karen Swift, 44, was last seen at her home in Dyersburg on Sunday morning. Her car was found abandoned nearby with a flat tyre. Swift reportedly filed for divorce from her husband a few weeks ago. Her family fear that the flat tyre led her to leave the car and go for help, and that she subsequently encountered some form of difficulty.
While there are no obvious links to the Holly Bobo case, many are speculating that the two disappearances are more than a coincidence. Such speculation is possibly a result of continued frustration over the lack of answers over Holly Bobo. Seven months after the nursing student vanished, there seem to be no new leads.
